Other than the academic programme, as visiting student, you can also benefit from all out university services.

Am I elegible to be a visiting student?

  • If you are a University student in another national or international higher education institution and you wish to take subjects that are taught in our institution even if you are not taking part in an exchange programme or there is no agreement with your home institution.
  • If you are not a University student but you have legal access to University studies.
  • If you have already got a university degree and you wish to go back to university for additional training.

What can I study?
